OUTDOOR TREND-VIBRANT PLANTERS AND 2 WINNERS!

Outdoor planters, traditionally terracotta and rarely embellished, have recently received a makeover. They have become infused with bold colors and interesting shapes, taking center stage over the plants they house. The good news is if you do use a colorful planter, you can be more subtle with your plantings, using a variety of greens or even a boxwood bush for a more modern, sculptural touch. Happy planting!




And for the winners of the Jo Malone scented hangers-
Teresa of Splendid Sass and Lesley from Around The Table. Congratulations!

I'm so excited! Thank you so much Barbara!

The boxwood is so pretty and looks great planted anywhere. I think I have the exact planter at the top (in black) and I have a boxwood in it! There are lots of beautiful options out there for containing plants!

Enjoy your day! xxleslie

Great point about being able to go more subtle with plantings if you have a vibrant planter. Love those blue ones!!
